– with few exceptions.  

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) included an individual mandate stipulating that effective January 1, 2014, people must have insurance meeting minimum essential coverage or pay a penalty at tax time. Consumers can enroll for coverage through a special enrollment period that will run from March 15 through April 30 if they attest that they became aware of the penalty during this income tax filing season.

This is the first time that consumers will be asked to provide basic information regarding health coverage on their federal tax returns. Because this requirement is new, some Marylanders are unaware of the requirement and the fee.  

Please see the full press release at the following link.  

Rob Cannon has been certified to assist with enrollment through Maryland Health Connection (Exchange) if you would like help. Contact Rob here.
